It doesn't matter. Why do you want a defense prospect who isn't NHL-ready? Look to next season. All three of Regehr, Leopold, and Sulzer might not be here. That leaves us with Myers, Ehrhoff, Brennan, Sekera, and Weber barring any acquisitions. Our defense has been atrocious with the three upcoming UFAs. Take them out look what we have going into the offseason for NHL defensemen. Even worse. Despres is NHL-ready and isn't a prospect anymore arguably. He'd be able to come in here from day one and occupy one of the top-four spots. Buffalo will need help on defense for next season, not another prospect we'll have to wait on to add to McNabb, Pysyk, McCabe, Gauthier-Leduc, etc. who won't be NHL-ready.

Bennett + Niskanen + first or Despres + Kennedy + first is fair for me.
